Henry Forrest was born in Covington, Kentucky and began his career near Lexington breaking yearlings for Col. E. R. Bradley's Idle Hour Stock Farm. He embarked on a professional training career in 1937 that would mainly involve operating public stables but also for renowned Kentucky owners, Claiborne and Calumet Farm. In 1966, Forrest won the first two legs of the U.S. Triple Crown races with Kauai King. He repeated the feat two years later in 1968 with Forward Pass who would receive American Champion Three-Year-Old Male Horse honors.
During a career in which he won more than 2,000 races, eight times Henry Forrest finished among the top ten American trainers in races won and on two occasions was in the top ten in purse money earned. He was the owner of Forrest Farms Inc. in Brentwood, Tennessee. 
Henry Forrest died in a Lexington, Kentucky hospital in 1975 at the age of 67. He is buried in Franklin, Tennessee. In 2007, he was posthumously inducted in the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame.
